Sir: The British Medical Association's report to the Science and Technology Committee of the House of Lords calling for a regulating body for each complementary and alternative therapy to protect the public against unscrupulous practitioners, although very welcome, is not new (report, 1 November).

Osteopaths and chiropractors already enjoy statutory self-regulation and professional homoeopaths are now working hard to produce joint national standards and register. Nobody wants to ensure the integrity of an alternative medicine more than those who practice it properly.
